Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Light barley sugar, green beans, coconut shavings, and some floral wax.
Palate: A touch of something sweet and perfumed – a little blackcurrant jelly \nand rose water. Again showing signs of youth though. \n
Finish: Short, with a lingering hedgerow fruit note.\n
Comment: Another young’un. Signs that greatness is on its way.
Nose: Hugely estery aromas of pineapple, apricot, melon and banana with a touch of greengage. Lightly herbal and botanical. With time the aromas become quite taught and mineral. \n
Palate: Lightly honeyed and again full of generously fleshy, estery fruit – pineapple, apricot, melon and banana. Just a smidge of oak comes through on the middle along with the botanical / herbal notes. \n
Finish: A little short with a slightly spirity finish.
Comment: A lovely malt, which runs out of steam a little on the palate. I would have liked to have seen a little more oak interaction.
